※ There is a parking with toilet for hikers, so I could car-stay before the climb.
※ When I went back home, I used the new highway, Izu Skyline. But, there are two things we should keep in mind.
1. The entrance gate was closed when I got there at 11:00 pm. It seems to be out of service at night, so you should check what time you can get there and their service time on the web, in advance.
2. For just one-way, I paid over 2 thousand Yen. Unbelievable, it's so expensive. I recommend you use national roads, although that would take much more time.

I had already achieved climbing all of the 100 famous mountains of the metropolitan area when I decided to climb this one. Actually, this was at the bottom of my priority list, because I thought it's not suitable for my climbing level. As I expected, it wasn't demanding enough to challenge my skills because of the easy and short course. I have no idea why this mountain was designated as one of the 100 famous mountains in Japan. I think there are so many more beautiful mountains.
Anyway, I do not recommend climbing this one unless you absolutely have to check it off your 100 mountains checklist.(the only reason that I did this “climb”.) There's no admirable points in terms of views, heights, sceneries, etc.
